Transfer news UPDATES: Antoine Griezmann AGREES personal terms, Philippe Coutinho preference

Arsenal DESPERATE for Ozil exit

Arsenal are reportedly desperate for Mesut Ozil to leave the club this summer, according to The Mail.

They're even willing to pay a percentage of his extrordinary £350,000 wages in order to push a transfer through.

The German has not been at his best all season and has been linked with a move back to Germany with Bayern Munich.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery also wants Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Shkodran Mustafi out of the club.

The price is right

Manchester United have set their asking price for striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgian forward, 26, has struggled at Old Trafford this season. His 12 goals in 32 Premier League appearances saw him drop behind Marcus Rashford in the pecking order.

As a result, Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan have been linked with the Belgian international.

However, The Times claim Ed Woodward and Co want at least £80million for Lukaku, who they paid Everton £90million for.

Neymar transfer latest

Neymar is reluctant to do two things despite wanting to leave PSG for Barcelona this summer, reports say.

Neymar does not want to apologise to the Barcelona fans, who were furious at his departure.

Many accused the Samba superstar of greed due to the huge wage that PSG were willing to offer.

But Neymar will not be saying sorry to fans of the Catalonian club.

Sport say the 27-year-old is also reluctant to admit he made a mistake in swapping Barcelona for PSG two years ago.

Antoine Griezmann signed in March!

Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann reportedly signed a contract with Barcelona in March!

Griezmann, 28, sent shockwaves through Europe when announcing his decision to leave the Wanda Metropolitano less than 12 months after signing a contract extension.

However, reports in Spain suggest Griezmann struck a deal with Barcelona months before his announcement.

Radio station Cadena SER claim to have access to documents that prove the Frenchman agreed personal terms with Barcelona two months ago.

Atletico Madrid are reportedly furious with the situation and will consider reporting their rivals to FIFA for an illegal approach as they did in 2017.

Philippe Coutinho preference

Philippe Coutinho would prefer to leave Barcelona for Chelsea rather than Manchester United, according to reports.

Mundo Deportivo claim United’s lack of Champions League football means the Brazilian is reluctant to move to Old Trafford.

Coutinho is said to be waiting to know if the Blues have their transfer ban overturned by The Arbitration of Sport.

If they are granted license to spend this summer, then Coutinho could move to Chelsea to replace Eden Hazard.
